Agent Carter series confirmed by ABC

Posted January 17, 2014 by Guilherme Jacobs in Comic Books

At the Television Critics Association press tour, ABC confirmed that they are in fact working on what might become a Agent Carter TV series. Agent Peggy Carter was introduced in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. ABC president Paul Lee told IGN the script as “great” and said that “[The show] has a great chance of showing up on the network”.  Carter, played by Hayley Atwell, already made a comeback in the short Agent Carter that came with the Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray, in which it’s shown how she began working with SHIELD.

Lee also confirmed the story was written by Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, with involvement from Reaper’s creators Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters. According to Butters “We’d be coming on as showrunners and being a part of the series. We’re very excited to be included in the Marvel family and to be a part of ABC Studios.”

Lee did not confirm whether or not a pilot has been ordered.
